    My beautiful Maine Coon, Nemo, died a few hours ago. He was 15 years old. It was so fast the last 48 hours. I noticed he was getting old the last few months or so, but he always ate well till two days ago. I held him earlier today and he slept peacefully, then he was gone. He died surrounded by his family that loved him. He was so full of life and affection I can’t believe he’ gone. I don’t think he wanted to leave us, but I told him it was okay. Thank you for your site’s comfort at this time.

      I’m so sorry for your loss, and glad you found comfort in the Rainbow Bridge blog post. Loosing one of our furbabies is very difficult, but they live on forever in our hearts, and they are always with us. I’ll bet your Nemo was very special. My Victory was a Maine Coon mix, and she was a great kitty. It’s nice to hear that Nemo was surrounded by his family when he passed. It’s also good you gave him permission to leave – as that is so important for both our pets and our humans.

  2. Neither we nor Mom had heard about the Rainbow Bow Bridge until we started blogging. Mom’s a little surprised, as she has nine angels kitties and two angel doggies that came before us. She hopes the bridge is really wide so it can accommodate all of us. Thank you for sharing this info, we are feeling more enlightened. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

    Thank-you for all the research you did on this subject. I’ve always thought that it might have originated and been adapted from ancient beliefs. The legend has comforted me so many times over the years.
